Timo Werner a happy man after scoring first goal of the season for Chelsea

Chelsea and Germany forward Timo Werner was a happy man after finally getting back on the scoresheet after finding the back of the net for the first time this season in Chelsea’s EFL Cup third-round triumph over Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

Chelsea knocked out Aston Villa 4-3 on penalties at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, with Reece James netting the decisive spot-kick following a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes of play.

Werner who is now in the shadow of new signing Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the 54th minute with only his fifth goal of 2021, though Villa’s youngster Cameron Archer equalized 10 minutes later midweek.

After scoring his first Chelsea goal since May’s Champions League semi-finals fixture against Real Madrid, Germany international Werner was happy with the performance.

“I feel good [hearing people sing my name]. It is good to be back on the scoresheet of course,” Werner told Chelsea’s Fifth Stand App.

“We needed to keep winning and get into the next round of the EFL Cup and we are happy with the game.”

Werner was speaking to the press after the match at Stamford Bridge, he went on to say,

“A goal opens the game, the first half, both teams were passive and struggled with all their changes. I think when we scored in the second half we were under a lot of pressure and lost control, went to 1-1, and after that, we showed a good reaction. We wanted to win in 90 minutes and were lucky to win on penalties.”

Werner was not involved in the shoot-out and he explained his absence.

“First of all, I had pain in my calf and couldn’t go out,” Werner said. “When you have fit players on the pitch, it is better they shoot than I do today.”

Chelsea head coach Thomas Tuchel, whose side will face Southampton in the fourth round, added: “We brought him into a situation where he can score, this is what we want, and then it’s on him to score.

“That’s why he is here. It’s the best feeling for a striker to score.”

Chelsea will now get back to training as they return to the bridge on Saturday as they host champions Manchester City in an early kick-off tie on Saturday afternoon.
